Soul Mirror

 

Soul Mirror is a pixelated Photoshop background and a baffle for the brain’s impulse to find meaning in pattern. It is an exploration of the optical phenomena that can be teased out of a limited media and palette. As a companion to Elementary Forces 5, it is the mirror out of which beings from the “other side” might pass. These beings can be seen attempting to come through in the visual ‘sparkles’ that occur as the brain tries to link the subtle variations in the tonal value of the light gray squares into some meaningful pattern.
